A marvelous treatment of one of my favorite Dr. Seuss stories,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Shape of Me and Other Stuff - Dr. Seuss (App)
I'm old enough to have missed most of the wonderful Dr. Seuss books during my childhood, but I'm having fun discovering (or rediscovering) them through my Kindle Fire. This app is a digital version of the story "The Shape of Me." You can read the story in your choice of three modes:
1. Read the book yourself.
2. Let a narrator read the book aloud, with you flipping the pages.
3. Let a narrator read the book aloud and flip the pages.
The book is rated for children (ages 9 and under), and even preschoolers should enjoy it in the narration mode. The story is simple enough for very young kids to understand. Like other Dr. Seuss stories, it's as much fun for grownups as it is for kids.
I've read several of the illustrated interactive Dr. Seuss apps, and this one has the biggest vocabulary of any I've yet read. The words are simple ones, however, and most school-age kids should have already heard the words, but seeing each word highlighted while it's pronounced is a powerful learning tool.
